WWE will present the King of the Ring 2024 tournament as part of the upcoming King and Queen of the Ring premium live event scheduled for next month in Saudi Arabia. The process of beginning the tourney with a bunch of superstars has begun from this week’s Raw as three names declared themselves to be a part of this.

During the April 22 episode of Monday Night Raw, Drew McIntyre, Gunther, and Xavier Woods were the three names who declared their entry into the King of the Ring 2024 tournament to determine the King of the Ring winner. In a hype-up segment aired for the tournament on Raw, it was noted that a series of matches is about to begin on the weekly programming of the WWE.

Drew McIntyre appeared in a promo on Raw to address the animosity toward CM Punk which didn’t make him the number-one contender for the world championship. Expressing his determination to refocus on his goals, McIntyre further revealed he’s entering the King of the Ring 2024 tournament. Sheamus intervened in the segment but the former winner didn’t mention anything about his participation.

In another prior segment on Raw, Gunther made his first appearance on Raw since his WrestleMania 40 loss and said he elevated the Intercontinental Championship to the heights it had never witnessed before. Gunther said a big weight had been lifted off his shoulders and for that, he was thankful to Sami Zayn. Gunther then officially announced his participation in the King of the Ring 2024 tournament.

After winning King of the Ring 2024, Gunther will declare which title he’ll go after. This promo was interrupted by The New Day’s Kofi Kingston and Xavier Wood. The latter then proceeded to enter the fray so that he could become a two-time winner of the tourney. Previously, Woods won the last edition of this old-school tradition that took place in 2021.

WWE King & Queen of The Ring premium live event will take place on Saturday, May 25 in Saudi Arabia, according to what was reported via Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. During WrestleMania 40 Sunday, an official announcement was on the return of the WWE Saudi Arabia 2024 PLE and the King of the Ring 2024 tournament that will be hosted.
